F*ck Donald Trump.

I posted this months ago.

GOP: What took you so long?

"Unpresidential. Unapologetic. Unable to accept responsibility. Unaccountable. Unsettling. Uneducated in diplomacy, foreign relations, American government, leadership and military command. Unworthy. Unhinged. Undulates between blaming Obama, blaming Hillary and blaming the media for everything. Unrepentant. Unimaginative. Unbelievable. Unverified claims presented as facts. Unsophisticated. Unworldly. Unpossible use and grasp of the English language. Unintelligible. Uncaring. Undone. Unalloyed, unvarnished, unfettered bullshiat. Unfathomable. Unacceptable. Unaware that much of what he believes and espouses is... Unconstitutional.
Un-American.
Unfit.

'The Trump presidency has so far been an unmitigated disaster, and unlike many Republicans, most Americans have been panicking since well before he was even elected last year.'

Hell, most of my old school friends who are Jewish started worrying about their lives when Trump won.

I'm sure they've thought so the whole time, but were willing to go along with it to push their agenda through.

The real problem isn't that he's unfit to run the country, it's that he's unfit to run anything bigger than a hotdog stand, which is about the level of competence and leadership the Republican party has right now.

Trump is beholden only to himself and Ivanka. Everyone else is expendable.

I'm still not sure if he's better or worse than W. He hasn't gotten us into any NEW wars, he managed to fail spectacularly at herding the Republican cats into repealing Obamacare (good thing he wasn't competent there), and he's fighting his own dudes. The bad is that he's elevated transphobia to national policy, but it's likely unconstitutional anyways. Like his anti-immigrant policies.

He's a fascist prick but doesn't have the leadership to advance his brand of fascism so far. Watch him like a hawk? Sure. But not the worst Republican by far.

I'd prefer Democrats but they haven't exactly shown leadership and competence. Losing most states, losing to Trump...

He's also in the process of dismantling US influence across the planet, making the rest of the world consider America to be completely irrelevant.

The last sentence of the article said it all. Matter of fact, there really didn't need to be anything else IN the article, because that would have been enough.

"Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the United States."

I hate this blog.

However, and I could be wrong, but I agree with its opinion-stated-as-fact. In Reince, Trump tossed the final Republican officer in his midst. Only the generals and Pence remain (and that guy's dirty AF). Trump's going rogue, which is a big threat to the GOP Congress.

It would not surprise me AT ALL to see him renege on his announcement to sign the Russian sanctions bill and veto it as a test to get a headcount of Congressional loyalists.

The Trump presidency has so far been an unmitigated disaster, and unlike many Republicans, most Americans have been panicking since well before he was even elected last year.

Keep in mind, this is a guy who built his political career on the racist lie that President Barack Obama isn't an American. He launched his campaign calling Mexican immigrants "rapists" and "criminals." He spent the election cycle demonstrating that he is completely unable to discuss or understand - or even care to learn - complicated policy issues. He tried to justify his treatment of women, even after a tape surfaced showing him bragging about sexual assault.


These two paragraphs need to be put up on every single billboard across the country.
 
2017-07-30 06:11:16 AM  
If only there were people around to question his temperament and competence before the election, then we might have had some warning.  The trajectory of this administration is just a complete surprise, to be honest.

Bush invaded Iraq after 9/11, and we're still a month and a half away from Trump's first September in office.

I also never worried about nuclear war on a daily basis under W. The man in charge now has thousands of unfilled vacancies and a necrotic state department, a foul temper, a mind like a sieve, a habit of foaming over wild unsubstantiated conspiracy theories he sees on cable news, espouses greater brutality in every way in American policy, and demands unconditional adoration from the entire universe--or else. Oh and his staff and family, rather than do the right thing, choose to enable him and his behaviors for crumbs in reciprocation.

No. Contest.
 
2017-07-30 06:14:36 AM  
For sure, there are still too many Republican leaders who continue to tow the line for the dangerous man in the White House. But as long as Trump continues to treat the government like a reality show or a play toy - something that exists solely for his childish amusement - more in the GOP will see what most Americans have known for a long time.

Well, Trump ain't gonna tow that line himself.  His hands are far to delicate.

He controls nuclear weapons and is clearly an unhinged narcissist who, by all evidence, has never had a friend in his life.

You're right that the article provides NO evidence for its assertions. However, I read it as being about the leadership, and I don think most of them have long known how bad Trump was but hoped to ride the tiger. Now they are increasingly realizing the tiger might actually eat them and want to get off.

My take is that he said he would sign the sanctions bill as a way to get a 'scratch my back, I'll scratch yours' for an ACA repeal bill. Now the Senate and House will agree on an ACA repeal cluster-fark, and Trump won't sign the sanctions bill.

Well, you have to consider the the procedural arcanum. Once Congress sends the bill to his desk, a few things can happen. Two are that Trump could sign or veto it. If Trump does neither--that is, if he does not sign it--that's where it gets interesting because of the pocket veto*. To prevent a pocket veto, Congress needs to not adjourn for a time (they did this many times to prevent Obama from making recess appointments). And of course, if Trump vetoes it, they can just flip his veto (this bill got some rare highly bipartisan support).

It could go smoothly and he signs it. But I don't think that any action taken to prevent passage of the bill into law at this point will actually be to prevent it from becoming law. I should change what I said: I don't think he'll veto it because of the optics of the act. However, it would not surprise me if he pocket vetoes to ferret out information (and put non-loyalists in a tight spot).

*pocket veto -The Constitution grants the president 10 days to review a measure passed by the Congress. If the president has not signed the bill after 10 days, it becomes law without his signature. However, if Congress adjourns during the 10-day period, the bill does not become law.

FTFA:

Where in the world have you been and why has it taken you so long to recognize that this is who Trump is and always has been?

The truth is that the GOP didn't care.

It didn't bother them that this man is clearly mentally unstable. It didn't bother them that he lacked the qualifications and temperament to be President of the United States. It didn't bother them that he is an amoral egotist who has never cared about anybody but himself. It didn't bother them that his main claim to fame is hosting a prime time game show.


No truer words have been spoken about the GOP or its voters.

That's my take too. Republicans get upset only when Dump does something that interferes with their plans. Other than that, he's the ultimate convenience for them: a non-stop tactless distraction who exhibits the meanness and bigotry they wish they could get away with expressing themselves. Dump isn't Republicans' enemy - he's a kindred spirit.

I'd be very surprised if 90% of them voted for him in the first place, actually.

A number of them had better reasons to vote for HRC - not least of which would have been a perpetual excuse to continue doing the job of "not governing" and blaming the White House.
